Planning & Assessment from the National Curriculum
This year I am embarking on a 3 year programme with the Yorkshire and Humber Maths Hub to become a maths subject specialist. This involves implementing a fully embedded teaching for mastery approach across the school,beginning in EYFS and year 1 . It also entails setting up a teacher research group consisting of teachers from other schools in the local area to share good practice, and raise confidence and attainment in maths across the Yorkshire and Humber region. The aim is for all children to have a ‘can do’ attitude towards maths and negate the idea that some are good at maths and others aren’t .
This is a very exciting project to be involved in and I am very much looking forward to taking both the children and staff here at Saint Mary’s on the journey with me.
